Cough ?TB: hi ~ of course possible ~ highly unlikely. Its not easy to get TB if you healthy, not living in CLOSE confines of a CONFIRMED case. Whooping you could have one of the other whooping coughs Theres 3: bordetella pertussis - u were vaccinated for sure, 2. bordetella parapertussis - u could have that and 3. bordetella bronchiesepticum, unlikely since its vetinary..viruses make u whoop too
